11-23 Beyond Paradox

For you reading this, happy thanksgiving. Those moments (seconds?) when we are still in mind, body, and spirit, and apprehend our Lord’s presence–thanksgiving flows. Jesus love you–and me. 🙂

Beyond Paradox

 

Paradox abounds. Descend to ascend.

YHWH pierces through flesh,

shatters mental idols as their visages

fade in trackless sand.

 

Image becomes nothing. One is barren

 

as a vast, dark temple without any shrines.

A few thoughts flicker, then fade

in darkness beyond.

 

Cogito nihil.

 

One no longer exists. Quiescence

lights the void and then—

 

nothing but You.
